7 April is time for Lincoln BioBlitz 2017 a 24-hour around-the-clock event where teams of biologists, with the help of the public, try to find as many different species as possible, living in Lincoln’s Liffey Domain. It is fun and educational.
Teams of specialist biologists will be searching the Liffey Domain throughout the 24 hours starting Friday 7 April 3.15pm and finishing Saturday 8 April 3.30pm.
A temporary laboratory (‘base camp’) with lots of microscopes and computers will be set up in the church hall on James St (opp the fire station).
There will be plenty of opportunities for public participation – joining the teams of field searchers, looking at displays and down microscopes at a ‘base-camp’, and talking to specialists about the many different kinds of organisms that live in our ‘backyard’.
It is most unusual to have so many scientists from different fields and different organisations working together at the same time and same place. This makes BioBlitz a rare and wonderful opportunity for the public to be able to join such an event.
